Re: Tel Balok II - Episode II: First Decisions

A few minutes later, the party of five stood inside a cozy home on the second floor of a housing complex. Miranda had demonstrated her resourcefulness by guiding them down the alleys and streets unseen. She apparently knew this neighborhood like the back of her hand. "So," she said as she...

Re: Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality

I think this is because of the nature of Hermione's death. If I remember correctly, the troll ate her legs and she bled out. Her brain was still intact, as were her major organs. It seems like she could be saved by restoring her blood supply, restarting her heart, fixing the massive wounds, and...

If it was a touchdown, no one would have given the playcall a second thought. There were about 100 passes thrown from the 1 yard line this season and no one thought those were good or bad playcalls.
